Day 3 of Colorado adventure: "Much-Closer-to-sea-level lungs Meet sparsely oxygenated mountain air" Far better today...12 meandering miles of the "where might this road go?" variety, under glorious sunshine. Sodden rock-soup roads of yesterday have blessedly reverted to (mostly) solid status. Paused to hike upward, sit on a flat rock, look around in awe and inhale sweetly intense pervasive pine-scent (fragrance molecules of which apparently occupy much of the atmospheric space vacated by purportedly superfluous oxygen at this altitude (-;) Success: Another ride without requiring resuscitation, supplemental O2, or paramedic intervention of any sort. (-; (Although in lieu of lungs I am still visualizing dried-out, stuck-together balloons which have lost crucial elasticity and resist inflating properly when pedaling UP.) "Home" ahead of rapidly approaching wall of purple-black clouds, dropping temps, rising winds, and rumbling thunder of (predictably) pending afternoon storm. Life is GOOD...Enjoy the Rides!

Did a lot of sweating today, I think I am ready for cooler and dryer days.

Perfect timing , first rain drop hit me just as I pulled into the driveway. Nice ride this afternoon, a little headwind but nothing to bad.

Met my neighbour, the person that told me about the nbc, heading the other direction on the trestle trail. I guess we both decided to take advantage of the nice weather today.

Beautiful short ride along the canal path above Great Falls. Bought sandwiches at a quaint store and ate outside on the MD shore of the Potomac River. Afterwards took a ride on the ferry to the VA side and back. The ferry has been operating since before and during the Civil War.

Recovering from a TPF and Broken Fibula. Riding blacktop on my MTB until I gain enough strength to hit the dirt!

Good ride out to Hatfield Forest via Spellbrook, I then looped back to Sawbridgeworth & up to Allens Green. Felt good, hit it quite hard, actual distance was 45kms, but stopped for a beer at the Prince of Wales in Tye Green & I switched Endomondo off, so did not log the last 10k.
